Collapsed and damaged houses are pictured from a helicopter after last week's earthquake at Sindhupalchok DistrictBy Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Bad weather has cut links with a remote village in Nepal where dozens of villagers and trekkers are believed to be buried under an avalanche set off by last month's devastating earthquake, officials said on Tuesday. About 100 bodies were recovered on Saturday and Sunday at Langtang village, 60 km (37 miles) north of Kathmandu, which is on a trekking route popular with Westerners. The entire village, which includes 55 guesthouses for trekkers, was wiped out by the avalanche and rescuers are digging in the snow for signs of about 120 others believed buried. Gautam Rimal, assistant chief district officer in the area where Langtang is located, said authorities had not made contact with Langtang for more 24 hours because of bad weather.

Standing at left is prosecutor Lisa Teesch-Maguire. Defense attorneys have urged jurors not to let emotions sway them, but with weeks of harrowing testimony still to come, experts say James Holmes’ lawyers will have a difficult time convincing jurors to put sympathy behind them as they decide whether he was legally insane when he killed 12 people and injured 70 others in July 2012. (Colorado Judicial Department via AP, Pool, File)CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Jurors in the Colorado theater shooting trial got their first look at a video recording of gunman James Holmes asking detectives, "There weren't any children hurt, were there?"
